Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. This line is used in a very familiar song. But it is so true!
I not only see but hear God’s glory in the bible everytime that I read the bible now! Here is just a side note to the blog today, SLOW DOWN, NOT JUST IN LIFE, BUT READING GOD’S WORD. Take time to really understand His intent of the words of the bible!
In Genesis,chapter one in description of the creation of the earth, do you notice that He actually was talking to us before we were created, and also he talked to the animals that He created. Check out verse 11 when He says “let the earth sprout vegetation,plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed,each according to its kind,on the earth.” In verse 22 God says”Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas and let birds multiply on the earth” and now check out verse 28 when He says to man “Be fruitful and multilply and fill the earth and subdue it and have have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Whoa! as Fonzi used to say!
Now let us remember something that is very important at this stage of the story. This is before Mankind’s fall!! We were not of sin or we needed not to be saved from it. We were in the Garden of Eden and God’s plan was in force with God and Us in full unity. We were in Paradise, formed by God. No worry’s, no cares, no problems! This was His Purpose for Us.
Here is now the moral of the story of the pre-fall. We are to be in God and God in Us and to fruitful and reproduce ourselves not only in a physcial way but a natural way of what we are(Us in God in God in Us),will naturally be reproduced as we are living.
In these three verses it was given that it would be so, to be a natural thing to be fruitful and multiply. Now let us fast-forward to after the fall.
We have now been trying to un-naturally try and be fruitful and multiply through our own strength. All through the old testament we see this process of us trying to be fruitful by our righteousness. But to no avail we continually fail including some great leaders of the old testament.
This is where our story pauses and set’s us up for the “rest of the story”!
God show’s us and tells us what HE HAS DONE TO START FROM THE BEGINNING!
PRAISE THE LORD, THAT HE DOES!
